Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Isle of Dogs - "Riverside" a 3bed, Townhouse

Tranquil 3 bed, 2 bath, 4* ETC home, with balcony views of The 02 Arena'.

The front of the property has suburb River views over the River Thames, there are no passing cars, no fumes, no boy racers, etc., just tranquil tidal waters teaming with fish and wildlife. The occasional passing ship or cruise liner slowly sails by, as does the River Shuttle bus on route every 15 minutes East to Greenwich, or Westminster up river. Catch this at Canary Wharf Pier.

The other side of the property has green lawns in a residential Private Square filled with mature rose bushes, many trees and seating, affording the most charming and private of holiday locations. Squirrels and the neighbourhood cat will keep you company.

Here each house has it's own generous private parking space, off street, adjacent, included within your booking. The house has 3 double bedrooms, 2 of the beds are king sized and one bedroom has 2 single beds, these 3 bedrooms are supported by 2 bathrooms. The top floor bedroom has a bathroom en-suite with a large bath with overhead shower, a bidet, a marbled vanity unit with wash basin and a toilet. At the other side of the room is the large bed and a private balcony overlooking the River Thames. There's seating and a table on the balcony so you can relax and while away the time watching the changing watery scenery, perhaps sip something cool. You will see the cormorants, gulls and passing ships.

The sailors on the Navel vessels often line up along the length of the ship in their formal dress to welcome and salute the docks as they sail past. Quite a sight really.

The 2nd floor has a bedroom at each side of the house with a bathroom in-between. This has a large shower enclosure with power shower. These two bedrooms on this level, one has a river view and one has a view of the private square gardens. All very quiet even though you are nearby the hustle and bustle of town. (Canary Wharf has a vibrant night life but no noise is heard along the river.)

The international exhibition centre “EXCEL EXHIBITION CENTRE” is 12 minutes away by either train or car. We have many returning guests who come each year to visit this centre. They get to know the area, the smugglers inn nearby 'The Gun' which is 16th Century and nowadays a thriving restaurant. They get to know the local pubs such as 'The George' at Crossharbour station. There are so many fine restaurants, we like 'The Gun' as it's very good and only 100 meters walk away from our garden gate. Along and around the waterways at Canary Wharf are so many good places to dine with a choice of international cuisine with notable Chefs. There are places for children too and of course you can dial up for free delivery of Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Thai., and a host of burger and pizza places.

The house is nearby the trendy, busy financial world of Canary Wharf.,with it's restaurants, many shops and vibrant nightlife. The house is fully insured for holiday lettings, provides excellent light and airy accommodation for up to 6 people, maximum.

A 2nd TV is in the 3rd bedroom on the 3rd floor (not satellite).

As would be expected given the close proximity to the City, there are plenty of excellent local restaurants to suit most palates. Nearby, within easy walking distance, you will find Billingsgate Fish Market which ensures the very best of seafood, all over London. Well worth a visit as there is a freezer unit in the house for your purchases. Opens to the public at 7.30am, till .30am.

An excellent Indian Restaurant is within easy 5 minutes walking distance and we have negotiated a 10% DISCOUNT for our guests. Also, a second Indian restaurants nearby South Quay train station, allows our guests a 10% discount. There is a 3rd Restaurant. full details of how to book these are given in the house.

This house offers a special retreat in a quiet private square, with the outside of the square being the property frontage, overlooking the River Thames. An ever changing view from each of the 3 levels. On the first floor you will find the large long open plan living area with a picture window taking up most of the wall, overlooking the River Thames.

In the centre of the living space is the dining area with strong solid wood seating and an oval glass dining table, seating up to 6 people. Then you have the kitchen area which has a breakfast bar with two high stools. The kitchen has a full sized dishwasher (we supply dishwasher tablets) a full sized fridge, a separate freezer cabinet, a washing machine which dries also, a double oven cooker with 4 hob plates plus a griddle side on the top. There's a large toasting area to the oven unit and we have a small toaster also, along with an electric coffee percolator, a microwave oven and all really that you would expect for a comfortable holiday home from home.

The famous Billingsgate Fish Market is nearby for the best catch of the day! Need to get there for 7.30am. They close at 8.30am. The fish from here supplies the whole of London’s restaurants, from 4.30am each day. You can buy small quantities though to suit your needs after 7.30am. They also serve brilliant breakfast of fresh smoked haddock with eggs.

For Groceries you will find all that you will need at our local supermarket which is 3 minutes walk from the house in Stewart Street.This opens at 7.30am each day and closes at 10pm., except on Sundays when it closes at 4.00pm. Then there are larger supermarkets such as the TESCO's across the road from South Quay Rail Station, this store is open till 11pm. A large ASDA supermarket is about 10 minutes walk.

There are lots of local tourist attractions and a superb selection of speciality shops in nearby Canary Wharf. Here also you will find picnic areas in landscaped gardens with waterfalls and fountains, a very large selection of eateries and clothing shops. It's a very rich area, teaming with wealthy financial traders who live and work in the area.

We have many fine Restaurants nearby, not least is the 16th Century Smugglers Inn, 'The Gun' which you can see from our garden gate, just a short 3 minute walk away.

Indeed, with a thriving business community we have many good eateries to suit all purses, too many to mention here, some are listed on the owners web site www.vacationsinlondon.com

Transport.

Located in Zone 2 of Central London's Underground Network, it's the cheapest rail ticket for Central London's Underground, there's lots to do and see everywhere.

Getting around Town: With so much to see, we have excellent transport arrangements.

Traveling around is a breeze, literally. The River Bus operates during commuter hours every 15 minutes and there's also the Central London Underground, particularly the Jubilee Line. So one can be wisked off to pastures new, in minutes. We have 3 local rail stations in all.

Nearby there’s Canary Wharf, Greenwich, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge. It's the cheapest tube fare for town and very easy to reach everywhere in town from one of 3 local train stations, all part of the Central London Underground Network. It all depends on which direction of town you wish to travel to.

Also, there are Red London Buses, (Pick up point is right outside the square) Black London taxies, or the River bus which picks up from Canary Wharf Pier every 15 minutes. This is my favourite method.Travel up river to Westminster Pier, stopping at Tower Bridge Pier, then the Embankment (for the London Eye) or down river to Greenwich.(Royal Parks and Museums) The 3 local tube stations are 'South Quay' and 'Crossharbour' or 'Canary Wharf' on either the DLR Line or the Jubilee Line. both part of the Central London Underground Network.

I must not forget our local “Boris Bikes”, so named after our flamboyant Major of London. It was his initiative to install these bike docks all over town, possibly every half mile you will find one. Just £1 buys you an hour’s bike travel. The first half hour is free, so if you are smart you could cycle for 25 minutes, park the bike, wait 6 minutes and then take another bike for the next phase of your journey. 30 minutes covers a lot of ground in busy London streets. Cars are required to purchase a ticket to cover the congestion charge of £8.50 per day. Consequently, there are less cars in town. There are clearly defined cycle lanes everywhere and its very popular.

We can accept bookings online, by credit card, . Also, by English cheque or bank transfer. For a reference, we have been a a member of the English Tourist Council for 17 years, holding a 4* Certificate each year after an extensive annual inspection of the facilities and comfort level. So you can be assured that all is as it should be.

To hold the dates you require, we take a £200 deposit and then the balance becomes due 2 months before your arrival. We supply our guests with a confirmation of booking document which confirms all the aspects of the booking and the accommodation. Nearer the time of arrival we supply our guests with general directions from each of London’s airports and main hub train stations.

We hope you will get in touch, a quotation for your stay is quick and we would love to hear from you.

We offer a 10% DISCOUNT for same month bookings where dates are free, plus a 5%

Discount off the rates for returning guests.

About Ms. Christine James

Hello everyone, having worked in London from a young age, I grew accustomed to travelling in and around London and after a few years I chose to settle as a single business woman in this vibrant area of London. They were very exciting times with marbled skyscrapers popping up everywhere and new restaurants to try and new transport links. I drove into town each day and found that this was a convenient location with a wow factor of the river frontage. With off street private parking at the house and the area full of local attractions, this was indeed a find.

Then I met my Partner, he lived in the Midlands of England, so I duly moved. However, not wishing to part with this lovely house the idea came to me to rent for short periods. Thus, I would have a foot in the area when I wished to visit. I have family in the area and so this arrangement has proved to be very beneficial to all, sharing the wonderful views and tranquil waters with my new and returning guests.Check out the Special rates apply for same month bookings, where dates are still free.

Ms. Christine James purchased this house in 1997

Why Ms. Christine James chose London

This house struck me as soon as I cast eyes on it. I was not looking to move but immediately had to buy it. It has been a very happy place to live and now my guests can enjoy the ever changing river views and wildlife.

My local housekeeper looks after it for me and we both work hard to ensure our guests are made as comfortable as possible.

The English Tourist Council, inspect this property every year and grade again. A 4* certificate has been achieved every year for 15 years now. They check that the current regulations are being adhered to and holiday home insurance is in place and everything is as it should be for the Travel Industry.

I have been a member of their association for 10 years now. You will find our properties listed in their web pages on their site www.visitengland.com, through our 10 year association with them.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits for this house are: Superb River views; local transport connections are excellent; local tourist attractions; good restaurants; quiet private location; quiet streets away from the main traffic areas; good bus service; local London Theatres; Royal London markets. Private off street Parking.

More recently, we now have the '02 Orena' for live concerts; the New 'Olympic Stadiums' and the supporting new shopping centre Westfield, at Stratford; not forgetting the new Bike Hire Service from outside the private square. Just £1 per half hour to travel across town and park the bike up somehwere else in another docking station.

There is the Emerates Fly Drive which is a cable car ride across from the 02 Arena, high in the sky, across the river to London City Airport. The Shuttle River boat collects folk along the river at the Pier points. From The Royal Docks through to Westminster. Passing by the house just before Canary Wharf Pier. Very good mode of travel.

Please visit our dedicated web site where we have posted lots of links to the main areas and attractions. www.vacationsinlondon.com I have seen many sights on the river, a beached Whale, a mother and daughter Dolphin lost, they swam by and ended up at Westminster Pier; the Queens Jubilee last year, all the magnificent tall ships sailed by to moor at the end of each day in Canary Wharf locks.

We have many returning guests each year and some of their reviews can be viewed here and on our own web site, noted above.

I hope to hear from you soon.

(Note: We offer 10% discount off the weekly rate for same month bookings! )

Happy Holidays.

regards Christine James

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for renting this wonderful townhouse to the four of us for these last two weeks. We loved London, saw it to pieces, but what we will miss most is your lovely house and the River Thames.

Fantastic view, quiet but close to city center

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean house, owner is helpful and lots of info about london. Perfect view from lounge and balcony, we even saw a seal swimming by. Easy walk to DLR and Tube. It felt safe to park our car in the private square and there is no traffic in front of the house. Kitchen is well equipped for home cookin, but also enough restaurants around. Close to a huge Asda supermarket. Mobile airco/fans were helpful. Nice to have two bathrooms, and three large sleeping rooms. Space enough for 5. We had a great time!

Clean, bright and conveniently located to transportation, restaurants and groceries.

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly as described and portrayed in the photos. Very clean and well maintained. In fact owner came while we were renting to take measurements for new carpeting in parts of the townhouse.

Viewing the Thames every morning while drinking our coffee was a real treat. Unwinding on the upper balcony with a glass of wine after a long day of sightseeing was the perfect way to end the day. Kitchen well equipped to cook meals or eat take out. Not many traditional English pubs nearby, as we had hoped, but we usually stayed in London until late so lots of food choices there. If you have mobility issues this house is not for you as lots of stairs. Great for working off the pub visits!

Would definitely recommend this townhouse but for us we would stay in a location slightly closer to city centre as this area is very modern and not what we had hoped for in the quaintness we associated with old London.

Thank you for sharing your home with us as we have made lots of memories during our stay in London.

Owner's Response: It became obvious with this review that I need to provide written details of all the local pubs, which are often tucked way, off the main streets. It is true that the money injected into the Canary Wharf area generally has called for a lot of these public houses to be smartened up. We do have Historic Smugglers Inns, one of which is just 200 meters away from the front door. "The Gun" was purchased a few years ago and done up, i.e. paint and historic content such as pictures and old guns. It now provides it's customers with a more authentic experience but the drinks are priced accordingly. Very good food though over looking the gentle light show of the 02 Arena Concert Venue and night time bird wildlife. So well worth a visit. Another local Smugglers Inn, is "The Narrow" which was purchased 3 years ago by Chef Gordon Ramsay, so you see these old historic pubs are now presented much better and provide excellent food. One has to book in advance. See the owners web site for more detail on all these local Historic Pubs.

Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in london was an amazing experience which was made all the more enjoyable by the lovely property we stayed at. The riverside is just what you need whether your a big family or a couple. It has everything you need for a week away to be comfortable but it's the views what make it magical. There is a Tesco a minutes walk and a further five mins is the DLR line. It took us a few days to get used to the tube but we are such country bumpkins . The tube is so fast it's the only way to see everything(if that's your plan).loved the balcony on the top floor of the flat,just what we needed as it was very hot during our stay,we're used to drizzle in manchester LOL. The two local friendly cats are adorable and I confess to having a morning routine of feeding them,couldn't help it. If you want a relaxing and affordable place to stay in london I would definitely recommend the riverside,oh and Christine sorry we didn't write in the guest book.wasn't intentional,we're a forgetful bunch.xx

Comfortable, spacious waterfront home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and found the apartment welcoming and had plenty of room. The stove was more challenging than expected to light. The washing machine doesn't dry your clothes as thoroughly as expected of North American dedicated clothes dryers. Plan to air dry a bit. The DLR and underground were a bit farther than expected but not prohibitively far. Owner support and responsiveness was excellent. Even came with neighbor hood outdoor cats to entertain kids.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Well, sitting on the balcony, watching the boats and the ducks was lovely and very meditative.

So peaceful but yet so near the bustling citylife of Canary Wharf with its beautiful skyline delighfully watchable from the windows in the opposite direction.

Don't pull the blinds down at night - to watch all the magic lights and colours is a spectacular experience!

Nice neighbourhood with nice people, 5 minutes by foot to the local Tesco and 15 minutes to the centre of Canary Wharf, where you easily takes the great and fast Jubilee Line (which has stops at for example London Bridge, Waterloo and Westminster) to the inner city of London. Great eating out at Canary Wharf - we found a nice and a bit non-mainstreamish mexican restaurant named Wahaca near Canada Square. Great food and interior!

Riverside Apartment feels very homely and spacious (we wer two adults and three teenagers) and is well maintained and clean, with good beds and cosy sofas. A big plus to the parking spot! (And the cute and funny cats outside!)

The owner, Christine, was very nice and helpful although we did not need any help since everything worked perfect and the description was very accurate!

Great stay and we all hope to come back! Thank you, Christine and Martha!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 28 days. It was a wonderful base for us to visit London. Restaurants and shopping were close by and transportation into the heart of London was easy. The place was clean and well appointed and Ms. James was extremely attentive to our needs. The freezer expired close to the end of the stay and Ms. James was very quick to replace it. Towels and sheets were changed weekly and light housekeeping performed. The view of the Thames was a real attribute. The only drawback were the two apparently abandoned boat hulks which were anchored directly in front of the property. However, even these detracted only marginally as we relaxed with a glass of wine at the end of a long day sight seeing and watched ships and boats of all types travel along the river through the large picture window. It was a great stay and we recommend this property highly.

Owner's Response: We have many really nice folk stay with us and that makes our work all worthwhile and pleasurable. Re. this review I would just like to add that the boats on the river must have permission to moor there for a period, for a charge. The Port of London Authority provides a permit and when time is up they have to move on or they are removed. During the 2012 Royal Jubilee, we had some 200 or so sailing crafts of every type and vintage moor up on the River and in the siding Dock areas. Then the day after, silently in the night they went. Well all but a few very large company ships that are still in Dock at Canary Wharf today. However, on the River, it is very much a working river with Tug boats, pleasure cruises, large Navel ships from all over the World. Their arrivals are all managed by the PLA (Port of London Authority) as well as their length of stay. Further up river at nearby Tower Bridge, there are moorings available to rent for a price. If you visit the PLA's web site you would be able to find the program for the upcoming months arrivals. . Sometimes, my brother can be found, with camera to hand, waiting an arrival, outside the house. For all the boating enthusiasts among you, please visit my web site if you would like to see some pictures taken from inside the house. In the meantime, life for the Cormorants goes on and they are making quite a show of their fishing!
